Jury Duty and Court Service Policy
When an employee is called for jury service, the supervisor shall be given notice, and leave with pay will be granted in proportion to the scheduled working hours. Any juror's fees received by the employee shall be paid to the College, except for mileage allowance, unless the employee elects to take a vacation day that is approved by the supervisor.
When an employee is subpoenaed to serve as a witness in a court action involving the board or arising out of their employment, a leave of absence with pay will be given for the time required for such court appearance in proportion to the scheduled working hours.
Any witness fees resulting from court service shall be paid to the College minus legitimate documented expenses, unless the employee elects to take a vacation day that is approved by the supervisor.
If any provisions(s) of this policy or set of bylaws conflicts with laws applicable to Northwestern Michigan College, including the Community College Act of 1966, the Freedom of Information Act, or the Open Meetings Act, as each may be amended from time to time, such laws shall control and supersede such provisions(s).
